Established in 2002, Greenhouse Sports charity is leading the fight for a future where young people are supported and empowered, whatever their challenges, through sport. We coach and mentor young people from deprived backgrounds because the crisis for children living in deprivation is real and it is urgent.
Our magic is the Greenhouse coach, sports coach, trained mentor and role-model combined. Over the last 2 decades these coaches have worked with more than 50,000 secondary school children in London to help them fulfil their potential. We run extracurricular breakfast, lunch and after-school clubs at mainstream and special educational needs schools.
In 2020 we expanded our delivery beyond London for the first time, launching a programme of work to support children earlier in their lives at primary school. This expansion of services is critical to meeting the needs of young people growing up in poverty today, and we are committed to continue expanding these services in the years to come.
We are looking to recruit a qualified, skilled Cricket Head Coach to lead one of our programmes. The role will be based at Eastlea Community School and will include planning and delivering a comprehensive high-quality coaching and mentoring programme. Our programmes typically include a combination of non-curricular breakfast, lunch and after-school coaching sessions, one to one or small groups sessions (where agreed with the school) and develop regular competitive opportunities for all players. You will also be required to deliver half term and holiday camps during the school holidays.
As a coach you will also work closely with the Impact Team to collect high-quality data to demonstrate the effectiveness of what we do and to quantify the difference we make to our young people. Data is collected at designated times throughout the year and includes; case studies, questionnaires, skills and fitness testing. Our coaches also regularly review the young peoples' progress and set targets for their future development.
Greenhouse Sports is committed to Safeguarding & Child Protection and you will ensure that all policies and procedures are adhered to at all times and will maintain accurate records of all registered participants, staff and volunteers at all planned sessions.
To be considered for this role you must hold a minimum of a NGB Level 2 (or equivalent) coaching qualification in Cricket and have experience of successfully delivering and managing top quality Cricket programmes for children and young people in a school, community or sports club setting. You will also demonstrate strong mentoring skills and experience, as well as being a confident and capable IT user with excellent administrative and organisational skills needed to effectively plan and manage the programme and capture all relevant data in a timely manner.
You will be highly passionate about the Greenhouse Sports mission, values and beliefs and helping young people learn and develop.
All Greenhouse Sports employees are provided with comprehensive Continuous Professional Development support and are expected to commit fully to Greenhouse's Safeguarding & Child Protection policy.
